Memphis music legend Jim Dickinson dies

The music world lost another great one. Legendary musician and producer Jim Dickinson died Saturday at age 67. Dickinson worked with Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and Aretha Franklin. He also produced Big Star’s seminal album “Third” and the Replacements’ “Pleased to Meet Me.” His sons also made their mark: Luther and Cody are two-thirds of the band North Mississippi Allstars.

In the video below, Dickinson talks about working with Alex Chilton.

Known for creating the Memphis sound in the ’60 and ’70s, Dickinson is the second music giant to die in the past week. Les Paul died of complications from pneumonia last week.
